In this field, you will find references to names of groups or to the artists that made/make up groups. You may also come across references to other artists if there was/is question of collaboration without a joint name. This is the case, for instance, with artists who rendered parts of works by other artists (such as with P.P Rubens and J. Brueghel I).
In the 'Schilderboeck' he wrote that he designed tapestries for Spiering: later he transferred this consignment to Hendrick Vroom, as he was unable to draw ships.
